Ryan LeClair is an electrician by trade, but while looking for an excuse to get himself out on the water more often, discovered he had a passion for growing oysters. With Cascumpec Bay in his backyard, Ryan is able to tend to his oysters at dawn, dusk, and weekends to work around his career.
Ryan’s lease is in a stretch of water in Foxley River that is considered to be one of the best growing areas on PEI. Less than a mile from Cascumpec Bay, Ryan’s lease borders a deep channel. Each day the tides flow in from the Bay, rich with nutrients for his oysters. Ryan’s oyster cages rock gently with the waves of passing oyster boats forming a nice deep cup in his oysters.
